    Nepenthes symposium

    Hi Folks:

    Francois Mey is going to be our invited speaker in April and we would like to host a Nepenthes symposium on Saturday, April 23. I need a count of who would be likely to attend this event so we pick the right sized venue. We can host a small crowd at the Research Station, otherwise we'll rent near-by Town Hall in Bowling Green. I envision the symposium featuring Francois as the keynote speaker followed by several other guests talking about their field work or horticultural efforts. The symposium would run 3-4 hours and would be followed by a social, art, and plant exhibits. Vendor displays are possible.

    Would you please let me know if you would be interested in attending, presenting, or exhibiting.

    Sincerely,

    Phil Sheridan, Ph.D.

    I might be able to attend because I'll be out that way the previous week. I'll have to run it past my boss first though of course..

    I'd be interested in attending, but won't know for sure if I can make it out that way until next month.

    Hi Folks:

    Thanks for the nice response and keep letting me know if you want to attend. Chibae, I have to be careful trying to fill orders while handling events like this. We're typically extremely busy hosting the event and it's hard to fit much in. However, if you can send me a list of what you want I can see if we could have the plants for you.

    Best,

    Phil
